Don’t Walk the Caregiver Path AloneOctober 27th, 2011 at 3:02 pm by Eva Aguirre Cooper under News
I didn’t realize that nearly one in four households across America are caregivers. In Kent County alone, more than a third (37%) are providing care for loved ones. I have also cared for a relative and know how overwhelming it can feel.
I met a group of people today who are part of the Caregiver Resource Network. They represent 102 different organizations, non-profits and businesses all providing some kind of support or service if you need to care for someone in your life.
As our population gets older and we live longer, it will be inevitable that many of us will be caring for a loved one. So remember, “Don’t walk the caregiver path alone.” There are people that can help you.
